From, not For victory

I know every dialogue from this movie by heart! This scene embedded below has some of the best dialogue deliveries. It’s epic if you understand the reference. And if you don’t, just marvel at Brad Pitt’s chiseled jawline. This movie compelled me to research a bit of Greek mythology. And then with Chris Hemsworth playing Thor later, Greek mythology became really fascinating.

From, not For victory – poem by Ruelha

I don't fight for victory
I'm not a loser though, just hear me!
I've not seen the end
Sure, there'll be many curves and bends
But I know how it ends
Victorious I ascend!

Somehow, anyhow, I'll be the last one standing
Maybe my current performance ain't outstanding
But, wait till the end
Watch it all transcend
I was born for victory
Not in the lap of misery

I won't let anyone tell me otherwise
Because if I focus on them, I'll capsize
Whatever I am, whatever I've been
Remember, we have a St. Augustine
I stand at the perfect place
And see my destination in its face

You know what lies there waiting beyond?
Sure, some bloom late, and it may be prolonged
You cross the stormy oceans and the raging seas
To war with thousands of soldiers in sandy breeze
But beyond that beach lies victory
Although it's yet to happen; it's written in history

Victory is guaranteed
So fearlessly, I proceed
Because I don't fight for victory
I don't fight to soar unto glory
I already fight from a place of victory
I'm just maintaining my spot, I'm not jittery

It's unfair, but I'm favoured with nepotism
The Emperor's daughter I am, so there will be favouritism
I am already victorious
I am already glorious
I know how the story ends
All I've got to do is defend

I don't fight to gain anything
My present position I'm just protecting
The crown is already upon me
And I don't care if you disagree
Victory is already mine to keep
I'm not giving up the throne like timid sheep

    Or Any



    To Stay

    Yet to Lift

    The Rest oF All the

    Others Up However

    For me at Least Hehe

    my Achilles Heel is

    My Head As

    No My Mother
    Did Not Lift me

    Out of the ‘River Styx’

    With One Foot Making my

    Heel Week Instead i Fell

    Out of the Grocery Buggy

    Onto my


    And She Always
    Wondered if that
    Might Have Made

    me Special Like Forrest Gump…

    Anyway, Nope, i’m Not Complaining…
    These Are Still The Very Best Days to me now.:)
